Online Summer School for Time Domain Science

Applications are now being accepted for the online GROWTH astronomy school “The Dynamic Universe at all Wavelengths”. The school will include live webinars and interactive virtual workshops scheduled on Aug 17-21, 2020.

This school is designed for graduate and advanced undergraduate students with strong research interests in time-domain astronomy.

Selected candidates will be introduced to a wide range of observational techniques and data analysis tools for transient follow up at X-ray, UV, optical, infrared and radio wavelengths.

The 5-day program will engage students via live webinars (lectures and discussions) that introduce a topic, followed by live interactive workshops during which students will work with Python notebooks and data from observatories from around the world.
